Donna Mckenzie

Hi, my name is Donna. I have been married to my husband Jeff for 31 years. We have 4 sons, our oldest is 29 and our youngest is 17.   My youngest son, Ryan was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 5. Duchenne is a degenerative genetic disease.  It brings about a lot of changes, ones that we have no control over. We have to constantly shift what is normal  with each change.  

I have been homeschooling Ryan for the past 3 years, and I am his full time caregiver. I hate what Duchenne is doing to him, yet, it has changed our perspective on life, how we see things. We have learned how to appreciate the little things and each day!
